Happy Tuesday, beauties! So, last night was the premiere of season 21 of The Bachelor, and this was my first time tuning in from the beginning. I know… SHOCKING. Luckily, I was filled in on Nick’s story by some great friends and coworkers, and I’m here to share my top Bachelor picks based off the first episode! I hope Nick finds love this time around… (And, of course, here’s your SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t watched yet.)
Rachel, 31, Attorney
Let’s start with the lady who won Nick’s First Impression Rose: Rachel! This attorney has got beauty and brains – she passed her bar exam on the first try. She says she’s a fan of 90s country music and Michelle Obama – who has absolutely flawless skin! Will she keep her first-rose momentum going or will she end up like Olivia Caridi?
Danielle M., 31, Neonatal Nurse
Nick tends to fall for stronger, caring women – like Andi or Kaitlyn in past shows, so there’s no surprise here that he gave a rose to Danielle M.! What I like most about Danielle (besides the fact that she mentioned Wisconsin!) is that she is moving forward. In the past, she lost her fiancé, but she’s tough and is looking for love again!
Danielle L., 27, Small Business Owner
This beauty salon owner is absolutely stunning! Her hair is so gorgeous and I’m OBSESSING over her perfect, clear skin. At the top of her list to admire are Chrissy Teigen and Olivia Pople…girl, same! Will she be the future Mrs. Viall?
Vanessa, 29, Special Education Teacher
Vanessa is my fave contestant! Not only is she a special education teacher (so we know she’s caring), but she also speaks French and Italian! Her face was absolutely glowing through the entire episode – she must use an amazing moisturizer! And, not to mention, she was within the one-half of the girls who didn’t wear red… I’ll bet Nick gets down on one knee for her.
Liz, 29, Doula
Finally, one of the most dramatic backstories to the group – Liz. Long story short, Liz and Nick spent a night together in the past, she rejected his request for her phone number, and she didn’t put in an effort to contact him before joining the show. You can see how Nick can be pretty heartbroken for this, right? However, Liz is suuuper down-to-earth! She says if she could be any fruit, she’d be a grape so she would “get better with age.” That’s an answer I can stand behind!
Of course, there’s that CRAZY girl in every bunch, and this time, I’ve spotted two. To start, there’s Corinne, the one who went in for the first make-out sesh and interrupted other girls’ time with Nick. Ugh. And the one everyone is talking about: Alexis! She definitely made a wild first impression by wearing a full-body dolphin shark suit. I’ll give her the award for creativity!
Who are your top Bachelor picks for Season 21? Do you think Nick will finally fall in love? Let me know in the comments!
